Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Improving your life is much easier than you think. Whether it’s losing weight, sleeping more, or restoring your work/life balance – the secret is to start small.

For years, we’ve been told that being more healthy and productive is a matter of willpower: that we should follow the latest fad and make constant changes to our lifestyles. But whether in our diets, fitness plans or jobs, radical overhauls never work. Instead we should start with quick wins — and embed new, tiny habits into our everyday routines.

The world expert on this is Silicon Valley legend BJ Fogg, pioneering research psychologist and founder of the iconic Behaviour Design Lab at Stanford. Now anyone can use his science-based approach to make changes that are simple to achieve and sticky enough to last.

In the hugely anticipated Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg shows us how to change our lives for the better, one tiny habit at a time. Based on twenty years research and his experience coaching over 40,000 people, it cracks the code of habit formation. Focus on what is easy to change, not what is hard; focus on what you want to do, not what you should do. At the heart of this is a startling truth — that creating happier, healthier lives can be easy, and surprisingly fun.

Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Optimistic

This book lays down a clear plan to guide a change in behaviour. After years of failed attempts to change deeply ingrained behaviours and habits I now feel that there is real hope I can implement the changes I would like to make. Thank you BJ for sharing your work and giving me hope that it is not too late!

Great content but resources are missing from the PDF

Great book but the fact that some of the resources that the author mentions should be in the PDF is reducing my “ability” to do the tiny habits method. For example the flow chart mentioned 54 minutes into chapter 3. There are several other resources missing. It’d be great if someone could go through and troubleshoot that as it is a blight on an otherwise excellent work. Particular a blight on a book about making things easier to do.

Life Changing

BJ Fogg empowered me to take control of my habits and with that my life and the success that I am able to achieve. I wish I had discovered BJ's Tiny Habits decades ago.

Loved it !

Takes Behaviour Change and breaks it down into small, easy to understand and apply steps. I can't recommend this book enough. If you want to see real change in your life, Tiny Habits is a great place to start, and to keep going.

One to avoid

I am an avid reader of habit and focus based books, so I was really looking forward to this. Unfortunately, I found it so difficult to listen to that, after struggling through the first few chapters, I admitted defeat. Firstly, the narrator speaks really slowly with a weird intonation, which makes the book hard to listen to and unnecessarily long. Next, the content is far too drawn out and convoluted. The author seems to take good basic concepts, and, to make them his own, complicates them with rambling anecdotes, unusual terminology, and impractical solutions. I'd suggest listening to Atomic Habits by James Clear instead, it's far better in my opinion.

Life changing, one celebration at a time

This book teaches the skills of change. No matter where you stand on the nature or nurture debate- this book tells us how- by nature- our mind can be hacked to embrace and propel change. Changing what we do and consequently who we are. While there are many books on each specific area- for example. how to eat better or how to manage your finances, this book is more fundamental: how do you actually change your day to day behaviour so that you succeed to eat better or manage your money better. I have worked with the book for few months now and have succeeded in cultivating many new behaviours in my life. The principal I found most ground breaking was the importance of celebration in the formation of new habits. These are not empty, out of thin air, meaningless 'positive affirmations', but rather- well prescribed and tuned moments of shine, that wire in the new habits.
Get this book if you want to have a better life. This just might be the route forward.

Such important content

Definitely worth listening to. BJ’s work is incredibly important and he articulates it so clearly and well. I believe this is essential teaching across schools, universities, and workplaces.

The best habits book so far

I’ve read lots of habit building formula books but this is by far the most likely to work. I’ve already got a couple of new habits formed thanks to this book and feel confident to take on more with the simple skills learned.

Professional Narrator can change everything

Seems this recording was done using some kind of filters and modification. Contents seems interesting.

Buy it, Read it, Put it into practice - it works!

B J Fogg lays out his behaviour model and teaches you how to use it. He is not just another chump with a system to sell. He is a renowned behaviour scientist based at Stanford and if you follow the instructions you will be able not just to understand the model but to put it to work... and it really works!

Very useful and (potentially) transformative

BJ Fogg clearly explains the methods of behaviour design (with success stories) and how small changes can make a difference.. I particularly liked the chapter on how groups (families and work colleagues) can change together and am going to get on that..

Loved listening to BJ!

I thoroughly enjoy learning via Audible books and very much enjoyed BJ Fogg’s book and his narration of it. Have started some tiny habits already and am going to re-listen with intention again and take my family on the journey. It is a great book to have found during lockdown as we all want to come out of this better than when it started. A recommended listen for anyone ❤️.
